The Fisher Electric Company has been awarded the contract for placing incandescent lighting plants on the Menominee fleet of steel boats, consisting of the NORMAN, GERMAN, SAXON, BRITON, GRECIAN and ROMAN. These plants will be exact duplicates of those installed by the same company on the boats of the Mutual line. The boats are divided into five circuits and controlled by the automatic mechanism installed by the Fisher company. The boats will be equipped with new fixtures and the plants will be first class in every respect. After an experience of one season with the lighting plants on the Mutual liners, Mr. L.C. Hanna, president of the Menominee Transportation Company, decided to award the contract for placing lighting plants on the above named steamers to the Fisher Electric Company without competition.
